#lyddibug had a blast for her #moana birthday party @bowhabitat is such a great venue for a kids bday party they had adventures and activities for the kids in the learning center and they loved all the beautiful fish species in all the aquariums @janinecrowe3 did an amazing job with the Moana decorations grab bags and cupcakes and Lydia enjoyed the company of her friends and cousins We'll definitely be returning to do the full tour so Lydia can learn about conservation and ecology and so we can toss a line into the kids #trout pond
Yesterday she turned 4 and we had such a blast. Watching her grow has been an amazing adventure shes becoming an incredible person and makes leaps and bounds every day i cant wait to see how she continues growing both physically and as a person (she's gonna be tall i think)
Lydia you are such a caring generous loving person and daddy couldnt be prouder
Love you! 💗
#dance class in full effect a few days b4 the big performance 😂 #lyddibug was #awesome at her dance recital, as was everyone from @puremotiondancecompany it was a great time for everyone at the @itsallatthejube [ jubilee auditorium ] its been a long time since i walked the stage there at graduation, now my little one is dancing up a storm there 💜💚❤💙💛 ( lydia just had to pick these hearts 😆 )
#update #lyddibug loved the egg muffins she made & it looks like the knife training has been paying off from doing her own PB&J sammies to cutting her cucumbers for her snack time shes definitely doing #awesome with using utensils
#lyddibug always seemed to do well whenever i fed her with my chopsticks even during #fussy times she always chilled out with regular chopsticks so when i got on #amazon and found these she got so exited to pic what color and graphic they would come in, surprise surprise she chose the #ladybug graphic with pink grips all day she was excited to get home from gymnastics because she knew they were waiting in the mailbox
The little mister is 6 months!
You are trying to stand
Gabbing your mouth off
Crawling like a fiend
Banging those mighty baby arms
Sorta eating mushy food
And still waking me up every couple hours, but it's ok lol
Glad to have some of the WA fam come to share this with him!
Five. Over 60 months I’ve seen her grow into a brave, resilient, opinionated, stubborn, intentionally and unintentionally hilarious person. In the short time she’s been alive, so many versions of her have already come and gone. I miss the baby who fell asleep on my chest, the toddler who adorably mispronounced words, the pre-schooler who couldn’t do most things without help. But it’s a joy and a privilege to know the little girl with real friends, who reads as easily as she breathes, shouts at me to come and listen when she hears Theresa May mentioned on Radio 4 and dangles from the monkey bars on her own. I’ve become acutely aware that she’s reached an age where we might be doing things for the last time. Friday might be the last time she squeals ‘mummy’, sprints across the room, and flings herself at me the second I walk into Out of School Club. Today might have been the last time she’ll sleepily reach up her arms in the morning and say ‘carry me down the stairs’. It definitely can’t be long before she realises I couldn’t carry a tune in a backpack and asks me not to sing along to the Lion King soundtrack any more. Of course, there will be no warning when it is the last time. I won’t even know it’s happened. I’ll just suddenly realise, later, that it’s been a while and feel really sad and hug her too tight and make her cross. Until that happens I’ll just have to treat every time like it might be the last and try not to annoy the shit out of her by squeezing her a little longer and tighter than she’d like. .
